The Front Door: Week 15 of 2020

Taking a Break from “Covad-19”

While fiddling with photos, I am listening to the original soundtrack of “Evita.” Mandy Patankin-such a voice. Personally, I like this Lloyd-Webber musical much better than “Phantom of the Opera.” To my ear, the P of O music was a bit “tum-te-tum.” Furthermore Tim Rice was no part of the team a lyricist, and Sarah Brightman sounded a bit thin in the upper registers. I am partial to women singers that have a metallic sound in the high notes.

New Month, New Year, New Decade

The Name is the Same BUT Who Were These People?

I was going through my box of old photos which I have bagged and dragged with me for years. At long last, I am sorting them, scanning them and saving them to my photo storage on Amazon.

Naturally, there were some pictures of myself. It was strange looking at those photos as they seemed to be of people who looked familiar, but with whom I had the faintest of nodding acquaintances.

It seems to me that once I lost the chubby cheeks of the toddler, my face has aged but the basic structure has stayed the same. If you knew me at twenty-four, would you have known me at seventy-three?
